First Recorded Photograph – 33 A.D.

Shroud of Turin and the Resurrection

There has been a long running question about the authenticity of the Shroud of Turin. If indeed the shroud was the burial cloth of Christ, then we are looking at the first recorded photo negative. No pigment or chemical residue has been found on the cloth when researchers did tests. Their conclusion is that some sort of a burst of light coming from within the shroud made the image we see.


For this reason, ever since I heard about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all God’s people, I have not stopped giving thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers. I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come. And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way. – Ephesians 1:15-23


In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. – John 1:1-5

AMEN.

When the Latin Mass was dropped so too was this reading at the end of the Mass; John 1:1-14.

But WHY? Is it offensive?

Much has been written about the Holy Shroud of Turin. From forensic studies, we know the following. We know that, from pollen spores found on it, that the Shroud was in the area of what is now Israel 2,000 years ago. Pollen spores have also been found on it that indicate, conclusively, that it was in Turkey approximately 600 to 700 years ago, indicating that someone had possession of it and traveled with it. Blood tests have been done on the Shroud: I believe I heard it is a Mediterranean AB blood type. Other forensic tests have been done on… Read more »

Excellent comment, Steven! Not only is the image on the Shroud a photographic negative, it’s in 3-D, which no photograph can do. The image has 3-dimensional information encoded on it: • Where the shroud touched the body, the degraded fibers were clumped the most; less so where there was space between the cloth and body. • The clumping of degraded fibers is so uniform and precise that a computer can translate the lighter and darker groupings into mathematically precise values, which enabled two STURP members (US Air Force Weapons Laboratory physicist Dr. John Jackson and engineer Dr. Eric Jumper) to… Read more »

Yes, Dr. Eowyn, I heard of these tests, now that you mention it. This puts the skeptics’ arguments to rest once and for all.
Now as for me, the Question is: How do I practice my Faith? How can I be forgiven of my sins? This is the Image of MY JUDGE!

Often science ends up humbling us before God, because we doubt until we have “proof” in our own, human, terms. We are so reluctant to step out in faith….in the past….and now even more in our own days….

Yes, to all you so finely wrote, as I too have long felt this way.
